Retreat Projects and Clearance Fabric

We hope to see you this weekend for our Clearance Fabric Sale! - 60% off all clearance fabric!!!!!!! I put a picture on Facebook of all of the clearance fabric and we have been selling lots already today!

We are sooooo looking forward to our retreat.  Many have asked for fabric requirements so here it goes!  Beth will teach her quilt on Friday and Friday night will be our small mystery project.  Carol will teach her mystery quilt on Saturday morning and the Double Degree runner on Saturday afternoon.

**Scroll to the bottom to see a picture of Carol's Mystery Quilt and the Friday Night Mystery project.

Carol's Mystery Quilt is in two sizes - 70" X 81" or 93" X 106" - I know many don't care for a mystery project, but this is so much fun.  I will guarantee you will love the layout (If you don't love it you can give the quilt to Carol).  Because you are choosing a charm pack and a background, you pretty much know the colors.  Right? Just remember, when you purchase your charm pack and background, you want a good contrast.  This said, you may have to discard a few charms and add a few charms so you have a good contrast.  This is from a purchased pattern - $8.50.  You will get the pattern at the end of the class.
70" X 81"
80 - 5" X 5" Charms
2 1/2 yds - Background - Cut (35) 2 1/2" X w.o.f.
Border #1 - 1/3 yd.
Border #2 - 1 1/8 yd.

168 5" X 5" Charms
4 5/8 yds - Background - Cut (65) 2 1/2" X w.o.f.

Double Degree Runner - 38" X 15" - Pictured
You will need (5) different colors - 10" X w.o.f. or 1/3 yd - for the center of the runner and the scrappy binding.
Border - 1/4 yd. 
Backing - 1/2 yd.
Ruler - 22 1/2 degree from Nifty Notions or 22 1/2 degree Squedge ruler.  Many of you already have these if you did Carol's quilt last year or the Dresden Plate table topper.
